Subject: How Symmetric is the Electron? Looking for Out-of-Roundness of 10 -15 Femtometers
Refreshments served in Room 216 Physics after Lecture

The electron’s electric dipole moment(eEDM) will be sensitive
to particle physics beyond the standard model. We make use of the extreme electric fi elds found within a molecular bond to pursue an experiment to set a new limit on eEDM at a level that should severely constrain supersymmetric models.
